Yep. You read that right! Timbaland just treated us all to brand new music by the late singer, Aaliyah. The hit-making producer started streaming his new mixtape, King Stay King, on Christmas day — which features a previously unheard Aaliyah track. (Merry Christmas, indeed!)
The song, titled “Shakin,” is number two on the mix. Aaliyah’s voice can be heard singing the verses to Tim’s hook — and it is just heavenly!
Back in August, Timbaland revealed his plans to release new Aaliyah music, when he posted a photo of the late R&B singer to Instagram, saying: “People ask me all the time do I have any babegirl music we haven’t heard. Well the answer is YES.”
King Stay King serves as a teaser of Timbaland’s forthcoming album, Textbook Timbo, which is set for release in early 2016. The 17-track record also includes cameos by 2 Chainz, Young Thug, Migos, Rich Homie Quan and Tink. And the best part? You can listen to the whole thing, for free!
